There are tons of ways you can earn money and pay off sooner than you really expect. All you have to do is put your mind to it, to make money and pay off your debts.
Ready to put your debts to rest once and for all? Here are frugal ideas to help you get out of debt faster:
Sell unused properties
Extra junk around the house is just money is just money waiting to liquefied. Round up all of your old clothes, toys, housewares, and furniture, and have a yard sale. Then put the proceeds towards your debt of choice. Have valuable items to sell? Consider listing them on online classifieds marketplaces like Jiji and OLX.
Save your change
Do you have a change jar? If so, it’s time to raid it. Roll all of the extra change you bring in at the end of each day. You have them in your back pockets, that zip by the side of your bag. Then, make an extra debt payment equal to the amount that you’ve rolled. Repeat the process every time your jar is full.
Taking advantage of coupons is a great way to save money on the things that you need, but it can also be a great way to boost your debt repayment efforts. Challenge yourself to use as many coupons as you can when you grocery shop. Then, reward your efforts by applying the money you saved towards your debt.
Do you hire someone to cut your grass or clean your house? If so, it may be time to hire yourself for the job. Tackle a couple of the projects that you’d normally hire someone else to do. Then, “pay yourself” by applying the savings towards your debt.
